March 12, 2019 5:00 am
Fiji-Bati rep and St George Illawarra enforcer Tariq Sims has nominated brother Korbin as the player to fill Jack de Belin’s role at lock.
This if only the NSW State of Origin forward is officially stood down by the NRL while awaiting his court case.
De Belin trained with the Dragons yesterday and is awaiting the outcome of a Federal Court hearing on Thursday.
This will consider his application for an interim injunction to prevent the NRL introducing the new “no-fault stand down” rule which will automatically exclude him from playing until his criminal case is determined.
